St Peter's is a Colliegiate-type Church of amazing proportions for such a small village. This is due to 14th and 15th Century benefactors and the influence of the Hanbury family, Patrons and parsons in the 18th & 19th Century. Rector William Hanbury organised the first performance of Handel's Messiah in a Parish Church in England in St Peter's on 27th September 1759.
Our welcoming congregation meets on the 1st Sunday 10.30am(Family Eucharist with hymns) An Informal all-age service is held on the 3rd Sunday at 6pm with Music Group. We use Hymns Old and New "One Church, One Faith, One Lord" in our worship. An enthusiastic team of bellringers rings on Thurs evenings from 8-9pm and on Sundays for 30 mins before Service times.

In our services we involve people of all ages wherever we can.
